Thanks, I was lucky that the x member I had was in very good shape and did not require much repair. The three cross members did not require anything other than cleaning, and all the parts went together quite well. Had thought about doing this for some time, so when I pulled the frame from this old coupe and saw that one of the rails needed a lot of work, decided to go for it. 34ford5w - another great find! You keep reeling them in showing us that they are still out there!
